Had a nice visit to this free museum. Fun and informative. Be aware... you must go thru security to enter. As you leave you can pick up a bag of shredded money... a FREE souvenir !!

This is a very tiny money museum. I’ve been to a couple of mints before (Washington & Philadelphia) and these are really excellent. This one just has a handful of coins and some paper money which would certainly be interesting to an enthusiast in this...More

Very cool museum showing a brief snippet of the federal reserve. The display of what 40 M looks like was very cool and getting to see inside the Cash vault was cool too! Don’t forget to try to lift the Gold bar too!
